Revolut launches Ultra platinum card: cashback, enhanced trading and more



Revolut recently announced the launch in Europe of its new high-end plan called “Ultra.” 

This plan offers a platinum card with a host of exceptional benefits, including enhanced travel features, insurance on purchases, cashback, subscriptions, enhanced trading services, and much more. 

Below are all the details. 

Revolut’s new platinum card: all the features 

As anticipated, Revolut has officially launched in Europe its new exclusive plan called “Ultra,” which represents a new concept of luxury in lifestyle. 

After the initial announcement last winter, more than 430,000 Revolut customers in the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom have registered for the Ultra waiting list and will be gradually invited to unlock the new plan, subject to availability.

Ultra represents a premium subscription, positioning itself above the existing Plus, Premium and Metal plans. It is aimed at a growing segment of ambitious consumers interested in a luxurious lifestyle.

In addition, customers who join the waiting list and choose to pay the annual fee of EUR 540 will receive 5% cashback on purchases in the first month (up to the amount of the monthly plan).

In addition, Revolut’s new platinum card offers elevated travel experiences: lounge access at more than 1,400 airports, cashback on hotels, unlimited weekday commission-free currency exchange, and cancellation insurance for any reason. 

These benefits turn travel into a superior experience. Then, there are the unparalleled lifestyle benefits: a platinum card that offers 24/7 customer support, including a callback service. 

In addition, customers enjoy unlimited and fee-free international money transfers, as well as access to exclusive subscriptions with partners such as Financial Times, WeWork, NordVPN and others. 

These benefits give Ultra customers a personalized experience every day. 

Not only that, cryptocurrency trading at reduced fees is also on the list: Ultra users benefit from reduced fees for cryptocurrency trading, allowing them to make the most of opportunities in the cryptocurrency market.

Finally, a plan for global professionals: self-employed professionals and Revolut Pro users can enjoy a 1.2% cashback on payments made with the Pro card. This plan is designed to enable them to work worldwide with extra benefits.

Revolut’s other Ultra card features

Revolut’s Ultra cards are exclusively Mastercard, representing another important milestone in the partnership with Mastercard that supports Revolut’s expansion.

Ultra also offers protection for purchases of up to €10,000 per year for items stolen or damaged within one year of purchase. In addition, it includes cancelled event protection of up to €5,000 and a refund of €600 on eligible purchases within 90 days of the transaction (subject to insurance terms and conditions).

Ultra account holders can travel worldwide with peace of mind with global emergency medical and dental coverage, including winter sports. 

Ultra travel insurance also includes coverage for car rental deductible, loss or damage to baggage, delayed flights, and personal liability (subject to insurance terms and conditions).

Ultra customers can enjoy unlimited foreign exchange in more than 30 currencies and transfer unlimited money at excellent exchange rates without commission Monday through Friday.
